The Organizing Committee

Dear Colleagues, we are happy to announce that the 44th International Conference on Coordination Chemistry - ICCC2020 will take place in Rimini (Italy) from 5th to 10th July 2020.

The event, organized by the Inorganic Chemistry Division of the Italian Chemical Society, seeks to bring together all the most modern and dynamic players of the worldwide chemical community active in the wide field of coordination chemistry. It is a biennial conference with a long lasting tradition and an outstanding reputation in the Scientific Community and its institutional aim is to bring together world's leading scientists working at the forefront of coordination chemistry.

The conference will be scheduled during five days as a multisession event with 23 different thematic sessions (topics) to which contribute 214 speakers among Plenary, Keynote and Invited Lecturers of worldwide reputation. More than 550 slots for Oral Communications will be available for the conference attendees along with two Poster Sessions with more than 600 contributions on all the conference topics.

For more details on the conference organization, please follow us on the official event website

School of Nanomedicine 2019 Organizing Committee

The "Second International School on NanoAlloys (ISNA-2)” will be held in Pisa from 20th to 25th January 2020.

ISNA-2 is organized within the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action – International Training Network (MSCA-ITN) “Bimetallic catalyst knowledge-based development for energy applications (BIKE)” Grant Agreement 813748, and will focus on the structure and properties of NanoAlloy materials, with specific attention to their use in catalytic applications. ISNA-2 is a follow-up of the First International Training School on NanoAlloys (ISNA) School held in 2012 in Pisa, within the COST Action on “Nanoalloys” and will be held in collaboration with the French International Research Network (IRN) on Nanoalloys: “Nanoalloy properties and their relationship with structure and environment”.

The perspective audience of the School are Early Stage Researchers and post-docs, and its targets are: (i) to contribute preparing a new generation of young researchers knowledgeable of the theoretical and experimental advances of the field; (ii) to update previously developed educational tools with latest progress, in particular in the fields of predictive theoretical modelling of nano-alloys under realistic conditions, in-situ and operando characterization, advanced preparation methods, and industrial applications.

Registration: BIKE ESR participants are supported by the BIKE project. Participants external to BIKE are welcome (no financial support is available). No inscription fee is required, however external participants are required to pay for coffee-breaks (5€ each) and lunches (12€ each) for each day of attendance.

ALL participants should register via the link WITHIN 15th December 2019. External participants will receive a confirmation email that their registration has been accepted within few days.

Within the range of activities of GIDRM, the Computational methods and NMR spectroscopy Workshop will be held on Tuesday 10th December 2019 in Pisa, at "Le Benedettine"  Conference Centre.

Gathering contributions from experts in the fields, the aim of the workshop is to present the great potential of combining NMR spectroscopy and computational methods for structural elucidations of small molecules, proteins and materials, both in liquid and solid phases. The meeting is intended as anopportunity for a broad audience of interested researchers, from academia and industries, working in materials science and technology, chemistry and life sciences.

More info and registration are available at

Deadline for registration: 30th November 2019

Registration fees: 50 € for non-GIDRM members, 30 € for 2019 GIDRM memmbers, free for PhD students (please remember that registration is mandatory).
